Is there a logical progression from here that doesn't require massively long lookahead? Thanks.

First thing I can see is the 3 towards the top-left must have a line on top of it, otherwise it fairly quickly results in a loop, like this:-
And that same 3 must have a line on the bottom of it too, or it very quickly goes very wrong:-
Next thing is in the top-right corner - if the line running along the top went down past the 1, I can quite easily see that all solutions would result in closed loops or isolated ends without having to use fix position (one potential solution is fairly long but still quite easy to see):-

the left hand side of the two to the left of the zero in the middle right hand side - can't be set to true or the entire righthand side closes a loop (relatively deep, but not hard to see). That causes the top of the puzzle to join across, ruling out the line traveling through the middle of the puzzle near the two.
... that helped me a bit at least.

first make a cross on the left of the "2" at r8c5,
then by counting, there are two lines on the left and the top of the "3" at r3c3...
of course in KTW, there are two lines on the right and the bottom.
